Update on the Cause

The Vatican's medical commission met on March 5, 2015 to review the potential miracle or “cure that was medically unexplainable." They did not receive a clear majority. This means that they did not receive a clear “yes” or a clear “no.” The work continues as we wait patiently for the full report that will be sent from Rome within the next several weeks. In the meantime, please continue to pray for the beatification and canonization of God’s Faithful Servant.

Prayer for the Cause of Sainthood

O God, thank you for the life and holiness of your servant, Frederic Baraga.
I pray you will honor him by the title of Saint. He dedicated himself
completely to missionary activity to make you known, loved and served by the people
who you love. As a man of peace and love Baraga brought peace and love wherever he traveled.
Lord, grant Venerable Bishop Baraga the grace of beatification. 
We ask this in Christ name.  ~Amen
